Week of October 26th, 2015

Hello Families of 111,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! This is going to be a very spooky week in room 111 as many of our lessons have a Halloween theme 🙂

Homework packets are being collected Monday morning and you will receive the new one. Remember new packets are due on November 9th, 2015.

Letter Study: H, h

*In Zoo-Phonics the letter H stands for a horse. So when practicing the movement with your child we use our hands to make the sounds of the horses hooves by patting on our thighs.

Word Study: the, to

(students will be tested on Friday to see if they know this word. Your child will ONLY be tested if they are already able to write their name! Until they master their first name that will be their spelling word)

Number Study: 7 and all combinations of seven

Counting: all objects to the number 5 (10 if you child can do this!) counting to 100 by 1s and 10s and writing all numbers from 0-5 (0-10 if your child can do this as well!)

Please continue to do DAILY practice with these cards about 10 minutes with the letter flash cards and movements! This is a HUGE help when your child is sounding out words for writer’s workshop.


read for 10-15 minutes on Raz-Kids or personal books from home

Practice letter flash cards (about 10-15 minutes)

counting to 100 by 1s and 10s

counting objects to practice 1 to 1 matching

Wednesday, we would LOVE to have 7 parents in our classroom to run math stations! I already have three and want to thank Mrs. Bias, Mrs. Bouzeid and Mrs. Hajj. We will see you at 1:00pm we can’t wait 🙂


Halloween: We will be enjoying a class celebration on Friday where we are enjoying fun educational Halloween themed stations! We will also be having a small parade this year at 2:00 pm. If parents would like to come to the stations or parade you are welcome to join us. Please reply below and remember to sign in at the office on Friday before coming down. In addition, if your child would like to bring in a costume to wear remember NO masks, or weapons! If your child would like to bring in a treat for their friends we have 29 students. Make sure all treats are individually wrapped! 

I would like to wish you all a happy and safe Halloween week and weekend. If there is anything I can do for you please let me know!


Mrs. Ross


*Remember we have gym on Monday and Friday so wear the proper gym attire and shoes.
